Dear Editor:

Shelter pet brings joy

Dear Editor:

I recently adopted a cat at the animal shelter. She gives me great joy and I am giving her a good safe home. Anyone thinking about getting a pet should go out to the shelter and get a really nice pet, they need a good loving home.

The staff was very helpful and they are very caring about the animals there.

Imagine...

Dear Editor:

Imagine that you are standing by a river bank and you saw a baby floating down the river. You jump in to save the baby and you see two more in the water, so you try to save them and while doing that, you see four more go by. You look up and see that someone is throwing more babies off a bridge. You want to stop that person, but the law is on his side. He has the right to get rid of those he no longer wants.

This is the stuff of night mares. Now re-read the above and substitute animals for babies. Does the horror of the story change? People who profit from using animals (breeders, racing, rodeos, meat, milk and egg industries) will dispose of those animals they can no longer use or make a profit from, often by killing them, not for human consumption but just to get rid of them, and all of this is legal. The people by the river bank, trying to save those cast offs, are the various humane and rescue societies.

People who don’t want their children can give them up for adoption. People with animals they can no longer use should do the same. As long as this kind of cruelty is allowed, people should not be shocked when people do violence to other people.

When I see people marching to “stop the violence,” I think to myself, they don’t see the connection. Violence is violence. You can’t protest one while condoning the other. The laws of a state for the prevention of cruelty to animals is a good indicator of that state’s enlightenment and the integrity of that state’s people.

Thank you,

Ray Wilson
